in with michele obama, a portion of michele obama's speech, what did you think of it? >> it was a great speech, it really was. so many personal anecdotes you could visualize. we were talking last week about how ann romney said a lot of great things about mitt romney but never gave you the visuals. john said it best. who in america are in that convention hall -- or in that convention hall watching the speech didn't get the image of a loving father struck with ms, seeing his two children sat the top of the stairs and fighting and struggling to get up those stairs to hug his children at the end of the day or fighting and struggling to get out of bad to go to work to give them a slice of the american dream. it was an absolutely fantastic speech. and the great line, absolutely loved the line, that being president doesn't change who you are, it reveals who you are. >> very personal, very revealing but it also might have accomplished something in terms of touching on some key areas that might have needed some work, not that the president, you would think, had a problem with the women's vote. >> right
callum. good morning to you. good morning everybody at home. first lady michelle obama headlines the democratic national convention last night. it was a big night for her. she stood in front of a crowd of faithfuls and basically said that the president needs another four years to finish the job. >> i see the concern in his eyes and i hear the determination in his voice as he tells me, you won't believe what these folks are going through, michelle. it's not right. we've got to keep working to fix this. we have so much more to do. [cheers and applause] [shouting]. bill: so already now we have reaction from the romney team saying in part, quote on the first night of president obama's convention not a single speaker uttered the words americans are better off now than they were four years ago. our country deserves real solutions an a plan to turn our economy around, end quote. bob cusack, managing editor of "the hill." let's get to romney's comment first. the speech last night, how did it play? >> bill i was in the arena. it played very well. brought down the house t was genuine. at the same time ve
michelle obama. [ cheers and applause ] >> one by one, he dissected the romney campaign's major arguments against president obama, including attacks about health care reform and medicare made by vice presidential candidate paul ryan. >> that $716 billion is exactly to the dollar the same amount of medicare savings that he had in his own budget. [ applause ] >> it takes some brass to attack a guy for doing what you did. >> reporter: he went on, addressing welfare reform and the economy. >> in tampa, the republican argument against the president re-election was actually pretty simple. pretty snappy. it went something like this. we left him a total mess. he hadn't cleaned it up fast enough, so fire him and put us back in. >> reporter: he acknowledged the economy is still in recovery. but he asks -- >> are we better off than we were when he took office? >> reporter: president clinton did work in a plug or two for his own economic performance in the '90s. >> people ask me all the time how we got our budgets passed. what new ideas did we bring to washington? i always bring a one-word answer. ar
at the speeches this week, let's remember bill clinton had to follow michelle obama, which was a phenomenal speech, martin. that was as great a speech experience as you could ask for in a convention hall, and people are wondering, how can he follow that? he didn't attempt to top it. he did something different. he did a completely different thing as he so obviously would. so what i think happened was we saw michelle obama hit a home run, and then we saw bill clinton hit a home run, and nobody cares whether this home run went over the centerfield wall or the left field wall or right field. these are home runs, martin. these are just incredible performances, and i think barack obama's going to come in here tonight, and he's going to own this night. he's going to own this convention, own this group. and i really think he is now in control of the campaign the rest of the way when he leaves shar the lo. >> lawrence, the final question to you. how does the quality of speeches at this convention compare with last week in tampa. please stop yourself from laughing, lawrence. >> i actually think for the case
but first, tonight, headlines the first lady michelle obama. >> well, today, after so many struggles and triumphs and moms that have tested my husband in ways i never could have imagined, i have seen firsthand, that being president doesn't change who you are. no. it reveals who you are. you see, i have gotten to see up close and personal what being president really looks like. i've seen how issue that's come across the president's desk are always hard ones. you know problems where no amount of data or numbers will get you to the right answer. judgment call stakes are high and there is no margin for error. you're going to get all kinds of advise from all kinds of people but at the end of the day when it comes time to make that decision aas president all have you to guide you are your values and your vision and the life exkbreerns that's make you who you are. barack knows american dream because he has lived it. and he wants everyone in this country everyone, to have the same opportunity no matter who we are or where we're from, what we look like, or who we love. and... he believes that
michelle obama, first lady, very different take. let's watch. >> barack knows the american dream because he's lived it. and he wants everyone in this country, everyone, to have the same opportunity no matter what we are or where we are from or what we look like or who we love. and he believes that when you worked hard and done well, and walked through that doorway of opportunity, you do not slam it shut behind you. month, you reach back and you give other folks the same chances that helped you succeed. >> the role of government plays in providing opportunity. let's watch him. >> the american dream is not a sprint. or even a marathon. it is a relay. our families don't always cross the finish line in the span of one generation. but each generation passes on to the next, fruits of their labor. my grandmother never owned a house. she cleaned other people's houses so she could afford to rent her own. but she saw her daughter become the first in her family to graduate from college. and my mother fought hard for civil rights so that instead of a mop, i could hold this mick phone. >> congresswoman,

, michelle obama and others set the stage. tonight president obama prepares to make his case for reelection. >>> exactly two months ago 'til election day and the stakes could not be higher. the economy, immigration, health care and war. with most polls suggesting this race is a dead heat, the president just hours away from making his pitch to all of us. plus democratic damage control? >> it was not intentional. absolutely not. sometimes there are technical corrections. >> shep: party leaders say putting god and jerusalem in their platform is in the past. >> all those delegates in favor eye aye. >> aye. >> all those opposed say no. >> no. >> shep: nobody will say who took it out in the first place. now republicans are weighing in. >> if you've ever seen a demonstration of an obama-led incompetency, it was on that floor yesterday. >> shep: tonight political distractions on the president's big night. but first now, three hours away from president obama's acceptance speech. four years ago, he became the first democrat to win north carolina in more than 30 years. tonight he'll be on the road to

with michele obama and wednesday with bill clinton. not nearly the same level of security that we are going to see thursday on the football stadium. >> will mitt romney be the bump in the polls and will it be a 6-8 point bump? >> there is one tracking poll out today and inicates a 5 point bump. he went in the convention two points behind obama . how's about three points ahead. that is only one tracking poll. i don't think anybody will get the bounce they used to. back starting in recently as 2004, you would have an outparty and the party that didn't have the incumbent president in july and it was a full month until the incumbent party held theirs and it was time for people to listen to thes and momentum to build up. with the republicans they held it and ended it thursday night and they are already here in charlotte already and it starts tuesday night . bounces don't matter. what is going to matter is where the race is 5-sevendays after the democratic convention and voters sifted what said in tampa and then in charlotte and we'll see where it goes. >> i will not see you in charlotte. i don't
surprises here as well. >> some of the highlights, michelle obama is going to be speaking and jimmy carter and bill clinton will be speaking wednesday and that is always good? >> absolutely. what is interesting is that a lot of people say, boy, you don't want to share a stage with bill clinton and in fact, bill clinton is going to nominate president obama. he is the nomination speaker, and so, but he brings so much to the plate. number oner he is the most popular living ex-president right now and what does that include? swing voters and moderates and all of people upon whom the election may ride, and he is also extremely popular with the democratic base. clinton is kind of the good old days and that kind of remainind of him saying remember when i was president and things are great? well, that is the path that the president is on, and that is sort of the, he provides this backup for president obama as he nominates him. and it is clearly an emotional highlight for democrats who have always thought that president clinton was great. so he feels so many roles here reaching out to both the base
at the democratic convention. we know that lots of folks saying michelle obama knocked it out of the park, bill clinton and obama obama were no slouches either, of course, so who other than someone named clinton or obama really impressed you? >> i think that one of the other speeches that really stuck out for me, and i know was a big hit at the convention and with folks around the country was our keynote speaker, the first latino ever for a dnc keynote speaker, julian castro. and he really, i think, impressed the crowd not just with his personal story, but with his argument about how his personal story was not just the quintessential american story, but it was a story that was possible only in this great country and that the opportunities that were available to him to make him successful are the opportunities that are at stake in this election and that it was obama's policies that he's put in place and will continue to put in place to make sure that that american dream that he is now fulfilling is going to be available to everybody, regardless of how much money you make, where you come from, wh
, michelle obama. >> shannon, that's so fascinating about politics. four years ago bill clinton was saying nasty things about barack obama when his wife was running for president. now he's a valued asset for the obama campaign. shannon travis, thank you. we look forward to hearing from you during the democratic national convention. >>> protesters are already in charlotte getting a jump on this week's convention. the protest was called march on wall street south. cnn's joe john spent some time talking to demonstrators today in charlotte about their motives and plans. >> reporter: here in charlotte, and the run up to the democratic national convention, the march on wall street south, has been subject to a lot of hype but came off without a hitch with only two arrests and no reported violence. >> hey, hey, ho, ho, wall street south has got to go. >> reporter: between two and 10,000 people were predicted for this march. only a few hundred showed up, but they were loud. >> our children get sicker. your pockets get bigger. >> reporter: about what you would expect for a march against one of the l
and michelle obama were sensational in their respective conventions. with me too talk first families and other presidential politics, former democratic senator and governor of indiana evan bayh and republican congressman michael grim. senator, welcome. congressman, you were almost caught in the tornado today. >> yes, i was out there meeting constituents at block parties in brooklyn. >> the tornado hit your district. the nerve. >> absolutely. right there. >> geraldo: it was weird and i'm glad it didn't amount to much. so listen, the first ladies. what role did they play and do you think they are significant? congressman, you first? >> i do think they were significant. both as you said, sensational. both delivered fantastic speeches but i think they play a very important role and i think the challenge is a little bit greater for mrs. romney. and that is her role is really to humanize and show the softer side of someone that does come across like a c.e.o. which by the way i think the country needs desperately is the c.e.o. type. >> geraldo: i newt you wer thoe going to say a stiff. >> he is a goo
, news, with michelle obama, wednesday, as we mentioned with bill clinton, not nearly the same level of security as we're going to see on thursday at the football stadium. >> mike: will mitt romney get a bump in the polls and if so, the traditional 6, 8, 10 point bump? >> well, there's one tracking poll out today and an indicates about a 5 point bump that he went into the convention about 2 points behind obama, and he's now about 3 points ahead. but that's only one tracking poll. you know, i don't think anybody's going to get the bounce that they used to get. remember, it's back starting in-- as recently as 2004, you'd have the out party, the party that didn't have the incumbent president would hold the convenes in july and a whole month until the incumbent party held their convention, there was time for people to listen to the arguments that one party made and for the momentum to build up. you know, with the the republicans they held that convenes ended thursday night and they're already, we're in charlotte already to start tuesday night. and bumps don't matter. where the raise is f
tough, isn't it, the public eye. if you are michelle obama or ann romney or whoever you are, kate middleton, doesn't really matter who you are or what country you're in, the amount of attention that female very high profile people get these days, it's pretty unbearable, isn't it? how do you deal with that generally? generally? >> well, i think -- i think it's very difficult because you are always -- you always worry so much. not really, i can't generalize. i worry so much. i worry what's going to be the backlash or what is it -- what -- am i looking right, not looking right? in fact, i am a very godmother. an independent woman, i'm a children's book author, and i'm striving to make a difference in education for children with my charitable causes. so i think the best thing you can do is strive on. keep your head held high, and have courage in your heart. and, you know, you can't go back. you just go forward and keep walking tall. >> you certainly have done that the last time you were on my show, i got very intrusive with you and asked you about your love life and you said the follo
of barack obama's first-term record, and they are deploying him now in swing states, even more than michelle obama, he's probably the biggest asset they have. but life is long. you never know when you're going to end up, that these two men are now embracing to this extent. >> life is really long. >> you know, the president got a bounce at the convention, and it's arguable that clinton played a big part in that. we have this new pew research center poll that i found real estate interesting. it showed, when they were asking, what was the highlight of the democratic convention, 29% bill clinton's speech, 16% said the president's speech, and michelle obama's speech was at 15%. so does that also mean that there is a downside to having president clinton -- >> oh, you mean overshadowing -- you know, he -- everybody knows hays not the candidate. i think he's a great character witness for the candidate. i think there was a dangerous dangeat the convention of that kind of a result, because you want your candidate to shine, not the person who is testifying on your behalf to shine. but i think right now
whether that combined with michelle obama and president obama's speech is going to produce a bump. it's a polarized electorate. bumps aren't easy. democrats are happy with last night. >> john, very early on in clinton's speech he really tried to own the obama line about you didn't build it. i thought that was actually somewhat surprising really trying to suggest that actually maybe that line he actually meant the first time around. >> well, democrats do mean it in the sense that not in the way in which republicans have been using it against the president, but they do believe -- i mean, it's the whole theory behind hillary clinton's book "it takes the village." we all remember that. it's the idea that collective action is a big part of our individual success, which is something that when we look at, say, a country like iraq where we've been at war, the emphasis on the rebuilding process is on creating institutions and civil society and rule of law and all the things that allow individual enterprise to prosper. that's the point the democrats were making and they're trying to drive that
. >> wow. a busy morning ahead. our guests include michele flournoy, co-chair of the obama campaign nation security advisory committee. tiki barber, former player for the new york giants, rudy giuliani, former new york city mayor, ben cohen, co-founder of ben & jerry's ice cream and singer cyndi lauper. >> it is wednesday, september 26th. "starting point" beginning right now. first we have some news just in to cnn. two american soldiers in afghanistan were killed today in an attack by a suicide bomber. the attack happened in logar province just south of kabul, afghanistan's capital. a spokesman for the governor of logar said the suicide bomber detonated himself during a military operation. he also said one american soldier was injured. we will have more on this developing story as details come in. >>> a big day here in new york. iran's controversial leader will deliver his final address to the u.n. general assembly as president of that country. that address is today. mahmoud ahmadinejad is stirring up controversy before he even begins. he told reporters that israel will be eliminated from
of fell flat on the heels of michelle obama's speech but, of course, david axelrod and campaign aides have done the same thing saying they didn't think they were going to get much of a bounce out of the convention anyway. on the heels of these two conventions, we are nowhere different than where we were before the convention, very even going into the debates. we'll have a very level playing field on october 3rd. >> heather: president obama was given a heads-up as to what this jobs report would be prior to his speech which is normal. he knew it was coming. he is campaigning today in florida, a state with the highest elderly population and unemployment rate of 8.8%. there is four key battleground states where the unemployment elevated above the national average. we mentioned florida, in nevada, 12%, north carolina, where they had the dnc. 9.9%. michigan, 9%. 735 delegates up for grabs among those states. how does the obama campaign win them over with job reports like friday's? >> what they are doing is running a very specific state by state campaign. so when you talk about michigan, presiden
, the first lady, michelle obama, perhaps the president's secret weapon, making, what, 11 visits to north carolina since 2009? talk about mrs. obama's appeal there. >> well, she has stressed military families and helping them and, of course, north carolina has a very strong military presence with fort bragg and camp lejeune, the marine base. so military issues are very important. it's a way -- she's much more popular than her husband is here, and it's a way to portray herself and to portray, sell the obama administration in a very nonpartisan way because it has broad support, it goes across party lines, of course. arthel: and then, rob, you mentioned that 2008 election. of course, the obama/biden ticket getting 49.70% of the votes there, the mccain/palin ticket, 9.48. so close -- 39.48. so close. so i ask you, what is it about the politics of north carolina that makes it such an enigma? >> well, there's a couple things going on here. first of all, it's a upper-tier southern state, it's much more like virginia than a deep south state, so it's always been much more moderate. we've had 20 ye
'm not surprised at all because i've gotten to know her. she's fantastic. i also think michelle obama did a very good job. there were a lot of very good jobs, but i think the democrats had more appropriate people to the party than the republicans did. >> steve: there was also bill clinton who gave a great if not very long speech on behalf of the current president. >> he did. >> steve: the day after the president gave his speech, donald, and by all accounts, the president flat in comparison to some of the soaring rhetoric that we've heard in the past, the day after, out pops the jobs number and it just couldn't be worse for the white house.6,000d 368,000 people left the hunt for jobs. for every job created, four people dropped out. the economic news couldn't get worse for the president. >> right. it was a bad report. it was a very bad report, was not covered as badly and as -- the way it should have been, but frankly, i'm listening to made in america or made in the usa, regardless of what he's saying, why isn't he doing something about china? he never attacks china. he's not stopping the problem
